APIE response to COVID-19

APIE has staff, trustees and volunteers in the UK, Rwanda, the US and further afield, and our priority is to keep everyone as safe as possible. With our usual creativity and determination everyone who works for APIE is continuing to work towards our key priorities with incredible energy and focus, despite the very challenging circumstances we all find ourselves in.  Our partner school in Kigali - Umubano Academy - is currently closed as a result of lockdown measures, but children continue to be taught using WhatsApp classrooms and staff are supporting families with welfare issues as well as educational resources and feedback. Like many charities across the globe, we are facing a funding crisis at a time when need is at its greatest. We have launched our Coronavirus Appeal with a target to raise £24,000 to enable us to continue to support the delivery of quality education to children at Umubano Academy and beyond. Please donate what you can.

APIE crowned winner of National Small Charity Big Impact Awards

APIE has today been announced as a winner of the national FSI Small Charity Big Impact Awards.


APIE's Chief Executive Angie Kotler said, “Despite being a small organisation, APIE is making a huge difference to the quality of education in Rwanda. By building effective partnerships with our many stakeholders, and by focusing on sustainable change.”


“Without the tireless hard work of small charities and community groups, many people in the UK would be considerably worse off,” said Zoe Darrah, Marketing Co-ordinator at Policy Bee, the sponsors of the awards.

This end-of-year newsletter highlights those unsung heroes who enable the work of APIE to happen.
